I'd buy the Volant brand from Amer/Atomic, tool up a factory, and resume production of steel capped skis. Perhaps, make a slightly wider version of the 02' Chubbs.
Hear, hear. I have 2 pairs of skis from the last production they did in CO. I think the Volant building off I-70 is still empty.

I won $5 once, but that wouldn't even buy lunch at a ski area :

If I ever had a really big win, I'd take a portion of the money and pay off the mortgage and other bills, take care of family members, give money to charity, etc. I'd invest the rest so my wife and I could live comfortably. Some travel ideas I have are:
  • Northern Hemisphere Ski Trip: Spend January thru April skiing around the world, hitting resorts in the US, Canada, Norway, Switzerland, Austria, France, Italy, Germany, Spain, Andorra, Romania, Russia, Japan, and China.
  • Southern Hemisphere Ski trip: Spend June through October skiing around the world, hitting resorts in Chile, Argentina, Australia, and New Zealand.
  • Warm Weather Trips:
    • Motorcycle tour of Europe
    • Motorcycle tour of the US and Canada
    • Hike the Pacific Crest Trail
    • Mountain Bike the Kokopelli Trail
    • Bicycle the Blue Ridge Parkway
...and on and on. I think $1Billion sould do it

What would you call it? Voided Chubbies?:

Pay off student loans, sell house (that I just bought 2 weeks ago) and buy a bigger better one closer to mountains and a new Supercharged Range Rover to get there.

Take a ski vacation in Alaska bring mine and my GF's family (10 people), outfit anyone with any gear they may be lacking. Buy all the latest Head gear for myself, book some WC level training for myslef. Ski for two weeks straight.

There are various practical aspects to winning the lottery, like helping out family, friends and charities. Beyond that, some dreams I'd like to fulfill are:

1) Travel to all of the North American ski resorts and eventually buy a condo at the one I like best. Ski New Zealand Europe as well.
2) Purchase a house at one of those country-club race tracks. Stock the giant garage with race cars, race bikes and a tow vehicle. When not skiing, race.
3) Buy a cabin in the woods somewhere. ADK, probably. When not skiing or racing, relax and indulge hobbies.
4) Spend a few weeks renting a sailboat in the BVIs every year.

I would probably move from my current 900 square foot house into one that was more like 1400 square feet and had a garage. I might buy a new pair of skis for myself as well as one for my gf and one for my son. The rest would go to good causes.

Lift tix & champagne -- very good causes.

1) Invest ALL the money and draw from the interest for day to day expense instead. Whatever's left over when I kick the bucket will go to charity to benefit the underpreviliged and/or physically challenged.
2) With that much in the bank, I can get any kind of loan I want. So I won't be paying any REAL money for anything I own, just take out another loan and pay the tiny bit of mortgage. That is, for anything that I bother to OWN.
3) There's really no need to own multiple homes. Much easier to just rent for a week/month/season whereever I feel like.
4) To get around from place to place, I'll travel either by private plane or first class of regular airline. Helicopter is a bit too risky for regular travel. Though I'll do heli-skiing, or cat, or ski-doo, whatever is most appropriate for the terrain.
5) I will chase the snow and ski where it's great.
6) Life is hollow if I only enjoy myself. So I'll see what I can do, for free, to help out with adaptive skiing.

Stay put where I'm at now, but chase the snow travelling to the resorts that are getting the most snow. Knowing me, I would make a couple of different trips and then conclude Vail has the most of what I want, and spend most of my time there. Maybe I'd stay in the Village instead of West Vail.

I'd go down to Miami and get some private golf lessons from Jimmy Ballard.
Would also need to do a heli trip just to be completely indulgent.

As for me, I'd go snowboarding.

I'd get an F-104 Starfighter with custom Yakima/LockheedMartin centerline luggage/ski pod. I could get to any dump or potential dump fast.

edit: add 57mm rocket pods for avi control
